Well, that lasted longer than expected, eh? In case crazy meds, a packed schedule of appointments, and a fibro flare-up weren’t enough, our modem also died. My mom always says bad things come in threes, and considering this month has also seen the death of our router and coma of our air conditioning (brought back to stuttering life at least until fall, when rates go down) she must be right! Fortunately, our moden has been fixed, and after a couple days of psyching myself up I’m ready to come back out of my burrow into the blogosphere. I can’t wait to see what everyone’s been up to: the almost seven hundred posts in my feed reader testify that not everyone has seen an August slump!
As for me, I’ve mainly been reading mysteries, with a couple slim nonfiction books thrown in. I do miss my usual more varied and challenging reading, but I’m just grateful that I can still enjoy comfort books. Today’s the first day my mind has felt clear, so perhaps I’ll be able to get back into my normal fare soon! In the meantime, I’m finding the novelty of reading one book at a time quite intriguing; it seems a good companion to my recent interest in downsizing my possessions. Many potential posts have been fermenting during my break; let’s hope I’ll be able to channel them into coherent, brief-ish (yes, my arms/wrists/hands have continued to protest much typing) paragraphs soon. Tomorrow I’ll be doing a Library Loot vlog, and with that I should be back on my loose schedule.
In the mean time, do fill me in if I missed anything big/fascinating/important!
